On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend explores the oil boom in North Dakota. Nearly a million barrels of crude oil are extracted from the ground each day in the state, and instead of pipelines, most of it is transported by rail. Now, prompted by a series of catastrophic accidents, the Department of Transportation has proposed a plan that could cost the industry $2.5 billion to phase out older cars they say are more prone to rupture. NewsHour's Stephen Fee reports.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend examines the issue of concentrated poverty, which refers to poor individuals and families living near one another, clustering in certain neighborhoods and regions. This results in higher crime rates, underperforming public schools, poor housing and health conditions, as well as limited access to job opportunities. And the number of people living in high-poverty areas is rising. But strategies to turn these areas around may be on the horizon. NewsHour's Megan Thompson reports from Atlanta.

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend explores the re-interpretation of the Muslim faith in South Africa, where recently, a Muslim academic opened a gay- and women-friendly mosque. The move was regarded as a response to the culture of exclusion and conservatism in the Muslim faith. And despite receiving death threats and fierce criticism, experts say the house of worship's policies represent an adaptation of centuries-old traditions. NewsHour Special Correspondent Martin Seemungal reports from Cape Town, South Africa.

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend travels to Iraq to explore a different take on the war against the Islamic State -- this time through the experiences of Kurdish women. Special Correspondent Martin Himel reports on an all-female unit within the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, on the front lines of a fierce battle against ISIS.

KQED 9: Sat, May 2, 2015 -- 5:30 PM

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend examines a growing problem among many scientists who depend on grants from the government to carry out their work. As federal funding for biomedical research has been declining in real dollars over the past 13 years, getting a grant has become more difficult. Now, many say this hypercompetitive atmosphere may stunt not only the careers of promising scientists but also America's preeminent role in global science research. Special Correspondent Karla Murthy reports.
